Fathers Day 2019 Brunch was a huge disappointment and surprise since Ziziki's is my favorite Greek go-to.
I think the kitchen focus was output due to crowd. Greek dishes were not good , but I will try again for a possible 5 rating on my next visit without guests.

What's happened to our beloved Ziziki's?! You must have changed suppliers for your yogurt because your Ziziki sauce isn't delicious anymore!! Normally we can't stop eating the roasted potatoes and Z sauce but this time the potatoes were almost burnt and had no flavoring on them and the sauce tasted like the only flavor was garlic without all your normal herbs! This used to be one of our go-to places with our extended family. Unfortunately we've now crossed you off the list

Hostess was unbelievably rude. Didn't greet us, just stared at me with a crappy look until I spoke. She also didn't understand why seating 5 at a table for 4 was not okay, even though I had a reservation for 5 that I made weeks ago. Luckily for the restaurant, one person canceled last-minute so we got a 4-top and they didn't have to worry about seating 5 of us comfortably... since obviously that was an inconvenience.

We then sat for 10 minutes with no one coming to our table. It took me getting up and asking if drink service was offered during the brunch buffet for someone to come help us.

Food was okay to good. Highlights: lemon cod, artichoke hummus, eggs with feta, tomato, and basil, lamb meatballs, and all the smoked salmon I could eat, even if it was cheap and chewy. Middle of the road: drunken mushrooms, cold white pasta, and greek salad that I could put together myself. Lowlights: the "bagels" were Thomas mini bagels and not actual bagels like I was expecting. Spanakopita was strangely sour and very off-putting. Chicken souvlaki was dryyyyyyy. So dry. The bottom of the lamb souvlaki bin was overcooked dry meat. Mimosas were served in giant wine glasses and have very very little alcohol. It just tasted like OJ.

Also, huge point of note: don't list things on your website that you don't actually have. The brunch menu on the website says it includes red pasta and grilled fish with red sauce. I can forgive the latter being absent because the cod (funny enough, not listed) was so good. But the menu also says it includes "Chef Made to Order Omelet Station (variety of toppings)." This is not true. My husband and my mother and I were all very much looking forward to this, but the Preston location does not have it. So disappointing. This needs to be taken off the site.

For $25 per person, I expected much higher quality. Can't say we will return.

Food was great, neighboring patrons, not so much. We enjoyed the lamb meatloaf and "fried cheese" and both were excellent. Regretfully, there was a large party by us that had tweens and they ran around, left the door open, were loud, bumped chairs. So the experience could have been better and I realize the restaurant cannot control the behavior of the patrons! Good food.

We loved our 1st time experience here. We are from a more rural area and were wanting our gyro fix. I highly recommend the trip dip appetizer. The artichoke hummus was outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. At the end she brought out a complimentary dessert since she knew it was our first time. That wowed us!! Will definitely be back when we are back in town.

Brunch experience was extremely disappointing... the food was mediocre, in particular the meat- both VERY dry, chicken was bland and lamb was tough and hard to cut/chew.
You get maybe 9 hot food options in their buffet (pancakes, eggs, potatoes, artichokes and fish, meatballs).
Cold options were a vegetable salad, fruit salad, salmon (not kept on ice, was warm, not sure how long it had been sitting out) spanakopita, pita and hummus (this was good).

Dessert was decent-chocolate cake, mini baklava and stuffed french toast.

You do get mimosas included in your brunch!

Service was good, environment was warm, pretty quiet for a sunday afternoon, primarily joined by fruit flies :(

Would not return or recommend.

My wife and I love this place. The food is great, the ambiance is great and the service is great. My absolute favorite is the grecian chicken. The sauce and mushrooms add to the flavor and potatoes are super delicious. And you really have to try the baklava ice cream cake. It's two layer of vanilla ice cream surrounded by filo and nuts with honey. So delicious. You can't visit this restaurant without trying it.

Good food and mostly good service. When less than perfect service they apologize and comped an appetizer without even asking anything.
Food was very good, seating is a bit tight ( especially if at a table for 2 ) so not much of a place to take a date.

We were a party of 4 on a Saturday night. Arrived at 6:30 and were seated promptly. It was a busy
night. Large party in adjoining room. All of the tables were placed very close to each other. Noise level extremely loud, We found ourselves almost having to yell to converse. Others in my party seemed to like their food. I didn't (Greek platter). Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. Service was OK. Nothing special. I don't think I will go back.
